Award-winning multi-instrumentalist, writer and producer, Brian Culbertson, brings his Funk! Tour to the Niswonger Performing Arts Center on Saturday, November 19th at 7:30 PM.
Coming off the heels of his newly released album, Funk!, Brian Culbertson effortlessly crosses genres between contemporary jazz, R&B and funk with his tour. His new set is a throwback to the stanky P-Funk records from back in the day combining infectious bass lines, greasy horn licks and sing-a-long hooks.
Heralding from the musically rich city of Chicago, Brian began his musical studies at the early age of eight on piano and quickly picked up several other instruments by age 12 including drums, trombone, bass, and euphonium. Inspired by the great R&B/Jazz/Pop artists of the 70’s, Brian Culbertson started composing original music for his 7th grade piano recital and hasn’t stopped having self-produced 16 solo albums, most of which have topped the Billboard Contemporary Jazz charts.
Having worked and performed with countless industry all-stars like Michael McDonald, Chris Botti, Ledisi, Barry Manilow, Herb Alpert, Natalie Cole, Chuck Brown, and Bootsy Collins, just to name a few, Brian has received numerous awards including being nominated for a 2012 NAACP Image Award and a 2012 Soul Train Award. Regardless of his success, fans can rest assured that Brian Culbertson always brings his very best – and brings the best out of others – in all his broad-ranging musical endeavors.
